Fall Applicants:

OSU-Cascades is accepting Fall 2023 applications. Apply now.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to explore OSU-Cascades (virtually and/or in person) and prepare to submit their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) starting in October so that we may provide timely scholarship awards and financial aid information to admitted students.

 

Winter, Spring and Summer Term Applicants:

Students applying for winter, spring, or summer terms must apply and submit all required documents before the posted deadlines below to ensure your application can be reviewed in sufficient time before the term starts. Admission application fees will not be refunded due to the late arrival of required materials. Students are strongly urged to complete their application process well in advance of posted deadlines in order to get through the subsequent steps in the process.

New freshman/first-year students applying for the summer term will be evaluated for admission using the same criteria as fall applicants.

Financial Support:

February 28 is the priority deadline for Federal financial aid. It is recommended to fill out the FAFSA when it becomes available in October, every year.

Regardless of which term you are applying for, the scholarship consideration deadline is February 1 before the start of the school year in which you plan to enter.
